Western Howard County Baseball is pleased to announce the league will once again be conducting a summer baseball program in 2013.
Games will be played on Mondays for the older players and Wednesdays for the younger ones.
Mondays games include 90 ft bases (for those who may play 13-14 next spring) and 70 ft bases (for those who may play 11-12 next spring) starting Monday, June 24.
Wednesdays games will be set up with 60 ft bases (for those who may play 7-8 and 9-10 next spring) starting June 26.
The summer session will run through the 4th week of July at Western Regional Park in Cooksville.
The league understands that summer is vacation season and has designed the program around players missing some time.
Teams will be formed the first day at the park but adjusted game-by-game based on the number of players appearing that particular evening.
The games are played in a "pick-up" type environment but every attempt is made to keep players together. Umpire(s) will be provided.
Uniforms are not provided nor required but baseball cleats and other protective gear are recommended.
The Wednesday night program will use "kid" pitch but also allow "coach" pitch for those new to the game or not quite ready.
Every attempt is made in the summer to give each player an equal amount of time in the field. Those who may have to sit out an inning or two to allow others to play will be offered the chance to work on a specific drill with a volunteer coach in the outfield or off to the side.
The summer program is a great chance for those who have wanted to try baseball but have been unable to do so because of other commitments.
In addition, this is a great chance for those who have been thinking about getting involved as a coach or an assistant coach to determine if this is something they would really enjoy. Volunteers are very much needed.
Please contact Tim Finkelston (email@example.com) and/or Rob Leimbach (R3L@yahoo.com) with any questions.
Registration will open in the first week of June.
We look forward to seeing you at the ballpark in this very fun and relaxed atmosphere at the beautiful Western Regional Park facility.
